Jackin'

By ExtentOfTheJam on February 14, 2016 6:58 pm

I've been listening to a lot of late 80s pop, so I thought I'd try my hand at New Jack Swing. Done in an hour with:
- Tabletop (DAW)
- Phase 84 (Chords, strings, organ, lead, arp)
- iMini (bass)
- iMPC Pro (drums)
- Wej (Bluetooth USB hub and surface)
- Korg MicroKey (cuz it's cute)
- iPad Air 2

Great funk sensibilities. Toejam and Earl would be proud.

Ah yea that synth bassline is funky!  I definitely could play some Toejam & Earl to this!  Or perhaps dance in my cavaricci pants yikes  Nice job!

I almost skipped this one when I heard the cheesy reverb on the drums but the funk kept me around.

Great groovin bassline! The influence of late 80's funk pop is quite there. I'm a little "annoyed" by a drum fill that occurs twice, which I find a bit sloppy at the very end (of the fill). Great job!

Huh, is it the one that's a triplet followed by a couple 16th note hits? I wonder if it's off a little

This one yeah. Sloppy was definitely not the right word. "It sounds weird to my ears in this context" is more accurate. wink
